The exotek horn for the AE car is a perfect fit.

I have the exotek on my b5m and b44.3. No complaints. Perfect fit and good quality.

Thanks. I think the servo horn I bought does not align the steering correctly. It seems to push everything left which may account for why the turnbuckles are uneven.

I've had the exotek one for on my new airtronics low profile servo but had a clamping racers edge also fit perfectly when I had my Savox 1256tg
So I think other brands fit but I guess to be safe call AE up and get an AE one directly from them or an AE from your LHS like said above if u are having trouble still

If you center everything prior to installing the horn on the servo. Zero the tx trims. Put the horn on the servo closest to center and then use the tx trim to adjust it should be fine...

I use the Racers Edge blue aluminum horn for my Savix. Very good quality.

Default Difference between 91528 and 91412 rear arms

I searched the thread and can only find a post as to "how they feel" when driving.

I have both sets here and physically they look very similar, they are stamped differently. The 91412 (lite & B5)arm does not have the cut out that the 91528 (Team & CE) arm has, aside from that they appear to be the same

What is the difference???

VERY little difference, the B5 arm moves the hub forward either 1 or 2 mm. Not much but it does give a lil bit more rear traction. That's why most ppl were putting them on early on. I did on both of my B5M's.

You probably want the "lite" version. New vs used? depends on the used car? And if you want to build it. There is not much you need to do to upgrade the B5m lite out of the box. So buying used with upgrades might be a bit useless. Most of the crap people put on the car is exactly that....crap. New vs used? Do you need to save a couple dollars? Honesly with the coupon codes on tower/amain, buying used seems fruitless, unless you pick up a cherry used car for a steal.

Yeah I couldnt agree with this more, the coupons now that they all have makes getting a new one the way to go
